Chateau Feely Creativity and Wellbeing Retreat Weeks
We’re excited to launch several new creativity and wellbeing retreat weeks/ short breaks including Yoga & Walking; Memoir & Creative Writing; and the Artist’s Way to complement our wine tours and walking tours already available.
Before diving into the wellness weeks a few quick ‘did you knows’ about accommodation at Chateau Feely:
- Outside the peak season of June to September you can book Chateau Feely Lodge or Cottage for short stays (min 2 nights) and for dates outside of the usual Saturday to Saturday bookings.
- If you are looking for a low CO2 ecological break we offer collection and return to the local train station and bikes are available (plus the gites have organic cotton sheets and towels, natural paint and eco-friendly building materials). See our ten ecological reasons to stay at Chateau Feely.
- if you are looking for a group getaway with both gites Chateau Feely can sleep a total of 6 (7 with the sofa bed) and a cot. See gite availability (click the link, scroll down and it’s on the right).
